Video Games

I'm sure at least a couple of you will agree with me when I say, I miss old school video games. I miss the crappy controls that only made you increasingly frustrated, (especially when Mario wouldn't go where you wanted him to and then you fell off the side of the building and lost a life.)

The new video games that are coming out are absolutely ridiculous. The graphics are so lifelike that it's almost scary. The characters are no longer generic, block faced and permanently angry. Now they look like the actual player they're supposed to resemble. Take Madden 12 for example, the players are almost spot on. Back in the 90's the players faces were practically disfigured, they had pointy cheekbones. Now it's as though each player has been hand sculpted to perfection.

I find it really interesting how far the graphics of video games has come over the years. Although I still favor the older games, but that's just me.

Here's a link to some youtube gameplay of Madden 12, just so you can see how lifelike these players really are in their looks and movements.
